Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today
Digital Skills Internship Programme
Ignition Group’s Digital Skills Internship Programme provides Sixth Form students from local schools with the opportunity to develop their digital skills and apply themselves in a dynamic working environment.
We offer internships in a range of functions such as Digital Marketing, Graphic Design, Content Marketing and Web Development.
Each intern chooses their specialism and works within a team of experienced practitioners for a period of 3 weeks. Our programme is aimed at exposing students to challenging business-critical activities, enabling them to gain relevant experience to support their studies and university applications. Additional to the practical experience students gain on the programme, they also get time allocated to complete a range of highly-regarded digital skills qualifications. One of the qualifications, Google’s Fundamentals of Digital Marketing, is a 26-module course recognised by the Interactive Advertising Bureau Europe. The Digital Skills Internship Programme has grown each year since its begun and welcomes applications from ambitious students looking to get an insight into the dynamic world of digital and eCommerce.
Digital Skills Workshops
Each year Ignition Group host Digital Skills Workshops at local Sixth Form centres.
The workshops, each led by an Ignition specialist across areas such as Digital Marketing, Graphic Design, Content Marketing and Web Development, aim to provide students with insight into the skills applicable in today’s digital economy.
Beginning with a presentation by one of our subject specialists, the workshops then allow students to learn independently through a range of Google’s digital courses. On completion of the digital skills foundational courses, the students are then are asked to team up to work on a project that applies their learnings. Due to the fast-paced nature of the digital economy, digital skills education often finds itself outside of regular school and university curriculums. Our participants’ feedback each year remarks on the welcomed opportunity to gain exposure into a subject area their school wouldn’t have otherwise given them.
